Lyrics

Well, reading and writing And rithmetic never did Get through to me It ain't cause I'm square or thick I learned my abc's But when I graduated The grammar school And I moved one grade above I began to be a snook at book But I made straight A's in love Now the teacher would say To learn your algebra But I'd bring home C's and D's How could I make an A When there's a swinging maid On the left and on the right and In the back and the front of me All my grades are low On my card I know But they oughta give me one above If they'd give me a mark For learning in the dark I'd have straight A's in love Now, in my senior year With graduation near I did my homework every night And when my mama said I oughta go to bed I'd turn out all the lights But my sweetie pie Was waiting right outside She'd be a cooing like a dove Though I did my best I failed semester test But I made straight A's in love

Now the teacher would say To learn your algebra But I'd bring home C's and D's How could I make an A When there's a swinging maid On the left and on the right and In the back and the front of me All my grades are low On my card I know But they oughta give me one above If they'd give me a mark For learning in the dark I'd have straight A's in love
